WiGig Chipset and Enabled Product Market

WiGig is a highly disruptive technology that will enable video cable replacement in PCs, peripherals, and consumer electronics. Since it was adopted by the IEEE, and the Wi-Fi Alliance has absorbed the WiGig Alliance, WiGig will ride the ubiquity of Wi-Fi via tri-band 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 60 GHz chipsets to reach shipments in the billions over the next 5 years. Smartphones will be key to achieving these large shipment numbers. All the major wireless connectivity chipset vendors have WiGig solutions available now, soon, or by next year at the latest. Several new WiGig-focused startups have arisen as well.
